SAM JACKSON signs on as Nick Fury

By: JaysQ

What's better than having SAMUEL L. JACKSON reprise his cameo role as Nick Fury in Iron Man for the sequel? Having him do it eight more times!
Variety reports that Jackson has agreed to play the head of S.H.I.E.L.D. in IRON MAN 2 which will again be directed by Favreau and starts shooting this spring.

This lends credence to my theory that MARVEL is headed in the right direction as far as continuity is concerned. The deal would give SLJ the option to play Fury in eight subsequent films, effectively holding down a quality actor to play a very important character in the Marvel universe. I'm just glad to see this finally went through after there was some dissension from Samuel L. and other talent in regards to skimpy paychecks proposed by the film's producers.
